Is the fact that my solicitor in Canonbury is not identified on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of his conveyancing?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Canonbury conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

My wife and I buying a victorian detached house in Canonbury. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will legal work on the property include investigations to determine if these alterations were previously refused?
Your solicitor will review the registered title as conveyancing in Canonbury can sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain alterations or necessitated the permission of another owner. Some works need local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
